“At Tapestry, we believe that sustainability is a business imperative. Our actions help us maintain a growing business with a reliable supply chain, and we know both customers and employees want to engage with companies whose values align with their own,” said Joanne Crevoiserat, Chief Executive Officer of Tapestry, Inc.

The Fabric of Change, Corporate Responsibility Strategy

Over the last year, Tapestry has continued to work toward a future that is both beautiful and responsible through its corporate responsibility strategy, the Fabric of Change. The report highlights the evolution of the purpose-led framework, which was introduced last year.

The Fabric of Change is Tapestry’s strategy for meeting the company’s commitments and goals in four key areas: people, planet, products and communities. The strategy is grounded in the belief that every beautiful choice can be a responsible choice.

In FY2023, Tapestry progressed the framework to meet the changing needs of the business, including the addition of a fourth pillar, “Create Products with Care.” The new pillar focuses on advancing material innovation, circularity and making more responsible finished goods.

Highlights from Tapestry’s report include:


  • Joined the Inclusion Works coalition of more than 100 Disability:IN corporate partners to further the journey of understanding and meeting the needs of associates, consumers and community members with disabilities.
  • Expanded the Employee Business Resource Group (EBRG) membership network by 30% in FY2023. Tapestry’s EBRGs now include six formal groups and three taskforces, and which serve to bring employee voices together into the channels where they contribute to all four pillars of Tapestry’s Equity, Inclusion and Diversity framework – talent, culture, community and marketplace.


  • Procured renewable energy for 80% of Tapestry’s global retail, offices and fulfillment centers and advanced efforts toward meeting the company’s renewable energy goal by entering into a 15-year Impact Renewable Energy Certificate agreement with Pivot Energy in Illinois and the launch of the Fashion Pact’s Collective Virtual Power Purchase Agreement (CVPPA), which commits to accelerating renewable electricity adoption by investing in new clean energy infrastructure.
  • Announced a new Environmental Sustainability Framework for our suppliers, which will streamline Tapestry’s sustainability strategy and provide more direct support to supply chain partners, to help improve their environmental performance.


  • Celebrated the launch of a new sub-brand, Coachtopia, with a mission to accelerate the transition toward a circular economy.
  • Sourced over 90% of the company's leather from Gold- and Silver-rated LWG tanneries, achieving our 2025 goal two years ahead of schedule.


  • Achieved the 2025 goal of donating $75 million in product and financial contributions globally two years early.
  • Completed 82,300 hours of global employee volunteering, a 60% increase over FY2022 and putting Tapestry over one-third of the way to the company’s goal of 500,000 hours by 2030.

“Tapestry’s purpose is enduring: we stretch what’s possible every day, through our values as well as through our business ambitions,” said Ms. Crevoiserat. “We’ll continue to forge ahead with this philosophy, driving positive impact in a world that’s evolving faster than ever.”
